Who will play at the Krestovsky Stadium (Zenit Arena)
The six Euro 2020 Group B games will be shared between the Krestovsky Stadium, St Petersburg, and Parken, Copenhagen. Russia proved to be a very good host of the 2018 World Cup so the fans of Belgium and Finland will enjoy their trip to the St Petersburg even if they will be significantly outnumbered by the home fans.
A draw decided that Russia will play their third Group B match in Copenhagen rather than St Petersburg which undoubtedly makes it tougher for them to qualify for the knockout stage.
Hosting duties for three Group E matches involving Poland, Slovakia and Sweden were belatedly take up by the Krestovsky Stadium when UEFA made changes in the host stadia to ensure fans could attend every game.
